Published May 13, 2010What with all the hoopla surrounding their upcoming reissue of Exile on Main Street and the unearthed tracks accompanying it, rock'n'roll legends the Rolling Stones are now considering a concert series that would see the band play some of their most beloved albums from front to back.
The Stones, who still play classic songs like "Paint It, Black" and "Sympathy for the Devil" regularly onstage, are considering favourites like Exile and Let it Bleed for the concert series treatment, now that playing whole albums live is in vogue.
As XFM reports, the Stones are still in the stages of mulling over the idea, but as guitarist Keith Richards has put it, "where there's smoke, there's fire, you know?"
"I have heard the idea being mentioned in passing, but it's in the rumour area," said Richards. "That idea has occured a few years back, where tonight you do Let It Bleed... it's an idea that's been around, but we haven't taken it by the horns yet."
The band were rumoured to tour later this year, but so far, no dates have been announced.
The reissue of Exile on Main Street is due May 18.
